I don't even get a MPEG4 option. The only choice under MPEG-2
Encoders->Low Quality->Video Compression is "MPEG-2 Hardware Encoder".
That is true not only for the Low Quality but for every one of the
possibilities. Did I miss installing something that will enable MPEG4?

I am using 3000 for Low Quality. I am not sure about the original files
but with the old settings (I lowered the bit rate a bit), it was about
12G for 30mins

When it does that transcoding which profile does it use? The MPEG-2
Encoders or Transcoders?

Algol-60 surely must be regarded as the most important programming
language yet developed.
